Ever wanted to build a remote outpost and needed to figure out what you were missing? Use the ghost counter selection tool to select your planned or half-completed build and it will generate a live-updating list of all the ghosts that are still left. You'll also see how much of each item you have in your inventory, as well as how many more you would need to finish the build. Click on the blue button to set a temporary logistic request for the amount you're missing. Once that request has been met, your prior logistic request (if any) will be restored.

The mod has a fairly light UPS footprint while it's being used, and no UPS cost when you're not using it. You can read the FAQ for more details. While it has been designed to be compatible with multiplayer, it has NOT been tested there, so use it at your own risk.

As the mod does not modify any in-game entities, it should be safe to add or remove from your game at any time.

How to use with area selection tool

  1. Select the ghost counter tool from your shortcut bar or use the keyboard shortcut (default: Alt + G).
  2. Select the area containing the ghost entities that you want to count. If you want to include ghost tiles in your count, hold the shift key during selection.

How to use with blueprints

  1. Select the blueprint in your cursor.
  2. Use the Ghost Counter blueprint keyboard shortcut (default: Ctrl + G).
